Writer-director Olnek... deftly parodies the myriad tropes of low-budget sci-fi with obvious glee, from the alien's monotonal speech to wobbly camera-handling and cheesy special effects.

Melissa Anderson
Village Voice

The played-out scenarios in Olnek's first feature, such as Jane's sessions with her therapist, are soon outnumbered by inspired silliness, like tears shed over a revolving dessert tray in a diner.

... a fun parody of 1950s black-and-white sci-fi flicks with a sweet love story at its heart.

John Anderson

Olnek's sensibility is singular, and the work of the cast -- notably the sweetfaced Haas and the hilariously robotic Ziegler -- make for a movie that seeks, and earns, affection.

Philadelphia Weekly

With an ear for dialogue as sharp as her aliens looking for love in all the wrong spaces, director Madeleine Olneck hits the mark with this send-up of lesbian dating culture (alienation, get it?) packaged as a B-movie spoof.

Madeleine Olnek has a limited repertoire of jokes, so it's fortunate that the film, at 76 minutes, is fairly amusing, even if it's never quite laugh-out-loud funny.

Ed Wood would have been proud.

David D'Arcy
Screen International

On a budget that could barely get you on the subway, Madeleine Olnek gets laughs and style out of interplanetary love.
